Selene Means is a filmmaker and activist in the Providence LGBTQIA+ and immigrant rights movement. I’ve come to know and deeply admire them as a comrade and friend over the past several years. This film will make its Providence premiere on Friday night as part of the Queer Arts Fest 2019 at AS220.
Artist statement: Angered by the 2016 election, a group of people get politically involved for the first time, to ban conversion therapy in Rhode Island. This is about about the efforts to pass a bill to ban conversion therapy in Rhode Island. No, it’s really about this small core group of people, ignorant and new to local political activism, determined and eager to do right and contribute. A poignant tribute to LGBTQ resistance and persistence in this time of uncertainty and fear. This is the story of what happens after you say “So what can I do to help?”
